Funny: Big Trouble in Little China
  • It is important to remember that, when the climactic battle starts, one should not fire wildly at the ceiling. It doesn't like it.
    • In the DVD commentary, Kurt Russell cannot stop laughing every time this scene is even referenced.
  • David Lo Pan controlling a celestial avatar like how one would use a video game controller.
  • Jack's continuous yell as he's sitting on an out of control wheelchair rolling down a long ramp straight to a pit.
  • Lo Pan: [spots Gracie, Margo and Eddie on a security monitor] "Who are these people? Friends of yours, huh? Now this really pisses me off to no end!"
    • "I'll have you both sent off to the hell where people are skinned alive, it's that simple, understand?!"
    • Preceded by Jack's Armor-Piercing Question about Lo Pan's failure to find the "right" girl during 2000 years. "C'mon, Dave, you must be doing something seriously wrong!"
  • "I can see things no one else can see."
    • Which leads to him confronting Lo Pan with lipstick smeared across his mouth.
  • Jack on the phone to his insurance company. "Look, I said 'accident!' I don't wanna hear 'act of God'."
  • Jack opening a warehouse door, seeing the heroes' escape route blocked by a swarm of armed mooks, and slamming the door back in their face. "We may be trapped."
  • Wang's nimble acrobatics juxtaposed with Thunder's statuary-shattering charges back and forth.
  • The eager Bring It finger wiggle by a grinning Lo Pan as Jack is gunning his truck through the alleyway right at him.
  • Gracie trying to do an 'up to here' gesture, but stopped by the chains on her, and Lo Pan doing it for her mockingly.
  • The look everyone gives when Jack throws his knife at Lo Pan, and misses by a mile.
    • Although given his string of failures, Jack succeeding on his second try (and the look on Lo Pan's face) is almost funnier.
  • Jack punching Rain to no avail.
  • A horrible monster pops out of the side of a tunnel to eat a guy, and Egg Shen throws an explosive from his bag to banish it.
    Egg: It will come out no more!
    Jack: What?! Huh? What will come out no more?!
    • Also this exchange between them:
      Jack: That is not water.
      Egg: Black blood of the earth.
      Jack: What, you mean oil?
      Egg: I mean black blood of the earth!
  • The Three Storms make their debut in a pretty awesome way, but when it comes time for them to go all Improbable Weapon User on us, it also gets ridiculous. Thunder pulls out a couple of funky short swords with bladed knuckle guards, Rain pulls out some pop-out rake things, and, craziest of all, Lightning makes spoons (or something?) rotate on his fingers so fast they become fan blades.
